Default Broken Vase

Hello HookahPro world...this is my first post, and I have to say thanks for such an awesome site, you guys rock, I love it.....

My sister just passed down a nice solid brass about 29" hookah, have no clue what the make is...but it's missing a vase! She said she broke it while moving. I was wondering if the size of the bowl really made a difference, because I was thinking of modding the bowl on my small/medium sized hookah to fit this nice stem. Any thought on if i get this tohow it will affect the smoking?

thanks!

I don't think the size of the vase has much to do with how it smokes. That usually is affected buy the stem size, and gauge size of the hose port and and downstem, also the hose can be a factor.

Do you mind giving more details on how you plan on modding the base? I am a little confused on how you plan on doing this.

and welcome to the site!

My smaller hookah is kinda cheapo one, the vase has a metal ring liner, if i remove that metal ring liner I can insert the larger stem in it, and to make it seal I was going to just wrap electric tape around the stems gasket to make the diameter larger to fit the new big hole left after removing the metal liner...whatcha think?

Sounds like it will work. As long at everything is nice and air tight. The only problem I can think of would be the hookah being unstable since is a smaller vase, but that won't affect the smokabillity of it at all.

The base makes no difference on how it smokes, just find one you like that fits the stem. Any bowl will work too, as long as the stem isn't female where the bowl goes in. Not too common anymore but then you'll need a male bowl and those aren't the easiest to find.
